This is the fifth Iberostar hotel that we have been to and the standard of service is extremely good. Beautiful hotel with amazing staff, food and facilities. We booked with the Holiday Place and flew with Virgin Atlantic from Gatwick to Havana. The transfer is over 2½ hours so not very pleasant. I would definitely recommend flying to Varadero if... More

We were a family of 4 with two teenage girls and the hotel exceeded my expectations. Pluses The food was better than expected with three good bookable restaurants and a very good buffet restaurant which varied things occasionally. This was better food than we have had at other all inclusive hotels in the Caribbean (Antigua and St Lucia). Entertainment was... More

We decided to pass on Muskoka...this summer due to unpredictable weather...and opted for Cuba. Resort was recommended as top for families. It delivered. Kind people, lots of activities, very good nightly entertainment, lovely rooms. For the value...guaranteed weather, spectacular beach, and fun pool atmosphere. Went with 2 kids and husband and another family. Children are 8 and 12. Perfect for... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of 9 days of driving around the countryside as we wanted to recharge our batteries before heading to Havana for 4 days. The hotel was simply beautiful, spacious in layout, with a great selection of places to snack or have a drink - you can choose from locations around the beach, pool... More

Chose this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews. Went with my baby and mother. Positives: nice beach, nice pool, generally clean grounds. Negatives: front desk service poor (generally each request was met with a series of redirects to other members of the front desk, clear that nobody really wanted to help), cleanliness in room a problem (long black hairs from the...

This is an all inclusive hotel in a paradise! The apartments are beautifully placed around gardens and on the beach. Food and beverage were OK. Rooms are spacious and clean. I reccomend this hotel, specially for family vacations.

We just returned from our vacation at the Iberostar Varadero. This resort was simply wonderful! All the staff was very friendly and they ensured that we had all we needed. The resort has one large buffet serving meals throughout the day into the night, a beach BBQ cookout with good bar for refreshments. We dined at the three restaurants where... More
